ROTC Partners

Students at Cabrini College, Eastern University, and Rosemont College may join the ROTC program at Valley Forge Military College.


Why Army ROTC?

College students enrolled in Army ROTC learn how to succeed in any competitive environment.

Cadets participating in the Military Science and Leadership curriculum enjoy many benefits, which may include help with college tuition, acquisition of professional military skills, practical experience in group leadership dynamics, and the respect of future employers.

Simply participating in the ROTC program does not commit a student to serve in the U.S. Army and there are several options available to Army ROTC cadets.

We suggest taking some classes to see if Army ROTC is something you are interested in. Students can take the first two years of Army ROTC without any service obligation or contract. Accepting a scholarship requires a service obligation and signed contract.

Contact the Valley Forge Army ROTC Scholarship and Enrollment Officer for further information.

Army ROTC Time Commitment

In addition to classroom instruction, the ROTC Leadership Laboratory is a weekly 3-hour period of practical instruction integral to the Military Science and Leadership curriculum. It is conducted Thursday afternoons with the objective being to provide practical application of classroom instruction in a simulated leadership environment.

Contracted cadets are required to attend morning physical fitness training three times a week as well as field training exercises to perform basic and advanced skills training, such as small unit tactics, land navigation, and basic rifle marksmanship.

Program Eligibility, Scholarships, and Incentives

Minimum eligibility requirements for Army ROTC are:

  • Cumulative 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale
  • Combined math and reading score of 850 on the SAT or 17 on the ACT
  • Pass a Department of Defense medical exam
